Day 9: Photo Background

Sometimes it’s difficult to start a journal spread or an art piece on a blank page. Today’s prompt takes away the pressure of a blank canvas.

Glue down a photograph on your journal page. Voila, instant background! From there you can decide if you want to use more papers for collage or if you want to paint and draw on top of the photo. Dealer’s choice as they say.

You can work with a theme and choose a photograph that provides a “jumping off” point, or you can start with something that grabs your attention because of the colors or the composition.

Play! Have fun! Make time for art. This has been a fun challenge for Tami and me. Thank you to everyone who has shared their work.
